How to tie up peonies so that they bloom beautifully

Why tie up peonies

Before the start of flowering, peonies feel good without support and grow in a compact bush. But as soon as the buds begin to bloom, the stems gradually lean closer to the ground. Under the weight of the lush caps, the branches can break at all, so it's worth tying up the plants so that they look neat and the flowering is long.

What you will need

  • Garden grating made of durable plastic or metal welded mesh;
  • cable clamps‑ties;
  • scissors.

How to do

Cut a piece of plastic grating or metal mesh. Its length should be slightly larger than the diameter of the bush, and its width should be from 40 to 70 cm, depending on the height of the peony .

At the junction of the mesh, secure it from top to bottom with several plastic ties.

At the end of the season, it is enough to cut the ties and send the mesh to storage. The support can be used again next year.

  • Polyethylene pipe (HDPE) of different diameters (for example, 16 mm and 26 mm);
  • scissors or wire cutters:
  • self-tapping screw;
  • screwdriver;
  • wooden or metal peg;
  • rope.

How to do

From a larger diameter pipe (for example, 26 mm), cut a small piece about 10-15 cm long. It will serve as a mount.

From a pipe of a smaller diameter, cut a piece a little longer than the coverage of the bush. Insert the edge of the workpiece into the attachment segment and connect the structure with a self‑tapping screw.

What you will need

  • 3-4 plastic pipes 60 cm long;
  • 3-4 metal rods 80 cm long;
  • hammer or mallet.

The number of supports depends on the size of the bush. For large peonies, it is better to take four parts, for plants smaller, three are enough.

How to do

Bend the metal rods at the edges so that the brackets are about 50 cm long.

Drive plastic pipes around the bush to a depth of 15-20 cm . The distance between the supports should be approximately 50 cm.

Insert a bracket into two pipes. Do the same on each side of the bush.

A simple support for the peony is ready.
